  • A must see! This place is a tourist's diamond in the rough. An awesome place to spend an afternoon away from the Vegas Strip crowds. There is quite a bit of outdoor walking on gravel and dirt so wear appropriate footwear. The period built and furnished houses are walk through dioramas. We spent around 3 1/2 hours of walking here and we worked up a good appetite to hit a buffet. LOL
  • We love the Clark County Museum! It is by far the best museum of local history that we have ever seen. We live in Indiana, and always make it a point to tour this excellent museum every time we visit our family in Henderson. With the incredibly affordable low admission prices, as well as the outstanding exhibits (both inside and outside), we will keep coming back.
  • Great Museum. Lots of history. Attaching some pictures
  • This was a lot more interesting then I thought it would be. I originally thought it was just they main building but the homes behind it are also part of the attraction. The printing room, train station and everything else will throw you back. Spend a couple of hours here. its really something
  • Lots of history. It's better to go when it's cooler as there is a lot of walking outside to see everything. It costs only $2 for adults and $1 for kids. Great value.
